1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Name that pattern! on: June 19, 2012 05:15:06 PM
Hey everyone!

I just picked up a jelly roll randomly, and am itching to try quilting. Here's my problem. I know how I want it to look, but I don't know the name of the pattern, if there is one, to help guild me along. It would be a lot better than winging it! The pattern looks like this: Please excuse the 5 minute paint job!
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / First wheel spin on: April 02, 2012 10:40:01 AM
After lusting after wheels forever, I found a 1972 Ashford traditional wheel for $85 in an antique store, and in perfect working condition no less! During a lesson from a friend who spins, I was able to finish my first skein, at about 6oz. I had a lot of issues with overspinning, but with my second skein I have already seen improvement with that! And so, without further ado...

First and second drying together

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a pattern on: February 20, 2010 12:21:50 AM
So, I am in love with this dress:

Does anyone know where I can find a pattern for something similar? Thanks!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Rainbow Blanket/Afghan Help on: April 24, 2008 02:52:20 PM
So, for my very first crocheted blanket, I want to make a LGBTQ pride flag. As there are no patterns for such a blanket, I am having some trouble trying to decide how to go about doing it. Which would be easier and/or look the best? a) Doing it all at once, switching the yarn after 10 rows or so b) making a "scarf" of each color and then sewing them together or c) doing it small granny square style and stitching all of them together at the end. Any input would be of great help!
5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Boy Beanie Help on: February 15, 2008 03:28:21 PM
I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I have tried to start this hat several times, and it never works out right. My problem is when you slip stitch to the chains to end a round. It always leaves this big ugly hole in the piece. What am I doing wrong? For now, I will just skip the chaning buisness and actually make it in the round.
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / CP soap won't turn blue on: December 12, 2007 12:44:34 PM
So, I've made about 6 small batches of CP soap now. They've all been brown, though this was on purpose (chocolate mint, caramel apple, coffee, and milk & honey). None of them have been terribly pretty, just plain bars. Today, I wanted to make some cucumber melon, and make it like a cute little melon. Unforunetly (besides the soap setting too quickly), the soap refuses to turn blue or green. I am using soap coloring. It is quite happy to turn pink or yellow, but add any of that blue, and it turns a mushy brown and white, or even purple. What is the deal? I know that it is not the recipe because this is not the first time this has happened to me. Any ideas on why?
7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Intro to Soap/Bath stuff making? on: April 09, 2007 08:33:56 PM
Hey guys, I love all of your stuff here. I was wondering if you could direct me to a beginners website. I would specifically like to learn soapmaking. Any other links would also be appreciated.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Looking for patterns- Unusual hats on: February 20, 2007 10:42:17 AM
Hi there.
I'm after unusual hat patterns for adults. This would include, but not be limited to- hats with dragon spikes, hats with kitty ears, hats with bunny ears, hats shaped like fruit, etc. The stranger the better!

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / **Adult Topic** B.O.B. Cozies on: December 03, 2006 08:28:56 PM
Again this is an adult topic.

(Trying to cover my ass.)

So, I was thinking the other day that my vibrator needed a nice home. I thought about crocheting it a cozy, but yarn has many loose fibers. So then, what do you keep yours in that keeps them nice and ready at a moments notice?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Harry Potter and the Nifty Knitter on: November 20, 2006 02:26:30 PM
**I'm a crocheter, so, bear with me here.**

I want to make a Ravenclaw scarf for a friend for the holidays. All of the crocheted ones that I've seen, frankly, look no that great. I would love to knit one, I think that they look alot nicer. However, there is no way I'm going to be able to learn how to knit, and make a scarf before then. So, I was curious about the Nifty Knitter, and other similar products. Are they easy to use? Are they fast? How close to knitting does it appear? Thanks in advance for your help.
